Relinquished (InDirections)

Dear father, I hope you get this Before time runs out And I hope you know that All the bottles you wasted your life on Maybe you'll see the boy that you have raised The one that you walked out on So long ago So long ago How does it feel to have nothing? How does it feel to be caged in like an animal? The only bond we'll have is through thick glass It's hard to even call you father Without choking on my words Was one pill worth it all To lose it all? We gave you open arms But it wasn't good enough (But it wasn't good enough) Why is it so damn hard To get through to you? (to you) You left us broken (you left us broken) Don't worry, mother is doing just fineWe are doing just fine without you We don't need you anymore We are doing just fine without you When I was down you weren't there When I needed you you weren't there So who are you now (so who are you now) To me? (to me) Hopefully you'll know What it feels like when someone turns their back On you Dear father, I hope you get this Before time runs out And I hope you get this And I hope (and I hope) And I hope you get this And I hope (and I hope) And I hope Why is it so damn hard To get through to you? (to you) You left us broken (you left us broken) Don't worry, mother is doing just fine We are doing just fine without you We don't need you anymore We are doing just fine without you I hope you get this message I hope you understand This meaning of what I'm trying to say I hope you get this message Of what I'm trying to say I hope you understand My meaning
